ok, ok, I got a liiiittttle carried away with these ‘sneak peeks’. I just get too excited sometimes and can’t stop myself from pulling too many images… I don’t think anyone is complaining though.
I truly enjoyed myself at Amber and Dan’s wedding. I’m going to put in a request to the wedding booking gods to shoot one barn/october wedding every year. At least one. And there better be carmel apples! Oh, speaking of carmel apples let me tell you just how amazing Amber and Dan are. (you’re totally like, WHERE is she going with this.. hang in there) Something that I have never seen happen happened at their wedding. I’m going on my 9th season (yes, 9th!) and never have I ever heard tell of a baker getting the days wrong for the cake. Are you following? No cake delivery. NO. WEDDING. CAKE. None, zilch. Pick your jaw up, I know. It’s devastating to imagine but their baker actually tried to say she was given the wrong day of the wedding.
So, I know what I would do. I would start chucking carmel apples at random people, set my veil on fire and cry REDO!!!!! (Ok, probably not, but most would.. It’s the cake, people, it’s huge) Amber did get sad. She was very disappointed but then she just wouldn’t let it get her down and a plan was put into place to cut (rather than chuck) a carmel apple… on an empty cake stand… with a big announcement and a laugh about it all. Impressed would be an understatement. But that’s just Amber and Dan for you. I mean, when you’re in love and getting married you’re not going to let something like a gluten free cake stand in your way. OH, did I forget to mention that it was a SPECIAL GLUTEN FREE CAKE?! Yeah, you’re riled up again aren’t you?
Don’t be, it’s all fine. Amber and Dan are getting free cake for life. (I made that up, but I hope so) they sortof deserve it don’t you think?
Ok, enough about the cake lets just talk about how fun these two are! Holy cow! I was laughing so hard all day at their expressions on the other side of the lens. Even during their ceremony. They were just so comfortable around each other and really got one another… and they could be themselves. They were so happy to be surrounded by their friends and family and ready to be married and spend the rest of their lives together. It makes me happy to get to be a part of such ‘meant to be’ weddings! Yay for Amber and Dan and their gorgeous fall wedding!!! I knew from the first time we all sat down together that this was going to be one of my favorite weddings from 2013. The chandelier on the dance floor, all the handmade touches (her dad actually carved that heart out of the book below because Amber loves reading… I know! Right?! I love it!!! He even carved the cake stand himself (we’re not talking about the cake again though).
I LOVE first looks! The best moment! No kissing before the ceremony!!! LOL – too cute! A great way to include those who couldn’t make it … too funny not to grab a shot of!
Amber and Dan found a photo like this on Pinterest and thought it would make a cute ‘family photo’ – I agree
